No Blacks Support Romney? Really, Pollsters?
Kyle Becker | On 22, Aug 2012
Statistically, the polling of “zero” for Mitt Romney doesn’t even make any sense. Even if only one black person, say, Thomas Sowell, planned on voting for Mitt Romney, the statistic should be represented as <1%.
President Obama, on the other hand, received a stellar 94% of the black vote in the poll. “Official” black unemployment is hovering at fourteen percent. He recently gave a rejoinder to Black Enterprise magazine concerning unemployment that “I’m not the president of black America.” Obama received 96% of the black vote in 2008.
With so much dissatisfaction with Obama among African-American leaders and intellectuals, one would imagine the polling to be less rosy for the president. Even disgraced black Congressman Charlie Rangel took a shot at the president by saying, “Obama has not restored that hope that was taken from them by George Bush.”
Because we have the “wayback machine” of the Internet, citizens will have the chance to easily compare the left’s conjured polls with the only poll that really matters: the one in November. And potentially, the “failing” media will only be further exposed as fraudulent. That prospect may scare some honesty into those who report information for a living.
Mark Twain is famous for having written that there are three types of lies: “Lies, damned lies, and statistics.” President Obama can poll however the mainstream media desire, but that doesn’t mean that black Americans will vote for him in such percentages, let alone show up to vote for him on election day.
